My girlfriends and I stayed here for 3 nights. We had no idea what to expect and when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. We were given an upgrade upon check in which included our own private pool, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a tiny kitchen area. We were very impressed. The location was perfect, close to the city of...

We loved everything about Mountain Paradise. From the welcome drink, to the pool side bars, complementary breakfast and check out the staff was always helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and the bathroom was huge. The pool was unique and the garden areas around our room had some great bird watching. We ate dinner once at the restaurant, it...

We stayed in a premium room at the Mountain Paradise for three nights in December. The room was very spacious and comfortable and the terrace with rocking chairs & jacuzzi with view of gardens with birds was very relaxing. The grounds are very well laid out and there is plenty of space between the rooms. We particularly enjoyed the hot...

We stayed in this hotel in January 2012. The first night here they told us that the room we reserved MONTHS ago was not available and we would be forced to stay in the smallest room they had for the first night. We said OK, as they promised us the best room they had the remainder of our trip. They...

Our first impression on entering the grounds was Wow! The reception has a beautiful view towards the Arenal volcano. Our room was a fair walk away, but had the same view. Our overall experience was very positive here, with just a few niggles (given the price, I feel these should be pointed out). We had a double with the biggest...

This hotel was fantastic. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were fun. Yes, they were a bit cheezy but I loved them. We had 2 showers in our all stone bathroom, 1 waterfall shower and 1 multiple jet shower. It was great! The pools and the pool bar are very fun. We spent our first night sitting in the...

Of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, this was by far our least favorite. And in all my travels I can not recall a time when I paid more for less hospitality. Yes, as documented in other reviews, the rooms are cheesy/awkward/cheap and that the jacuzzi is meant only for one (in our case actually zero, since the...
